(95-98) Jay Miller, The Wine Advocate (May 2011)

The 2009 Flor de Pingus (3000 cases) will ultimately spend 14 months in a mix of new and used French oak. It is opaque purple in color with a primary perfume of pain grille, mineral, spice box, incense, and blackberry. Locked and loaded with remarkable concentration and depth, this mouth-coating lengthy offering manages to incorporate some elegance into its powerful physique. It will drink well for 30-40 years.

93 Josh Raynolds, Vinous (November 2011)

Bright violet color. Smoky, mineral-laced boysenberry and blueberry on the nose, with suave oak spice and violet qualities coming up with air. Rich, fleshy and sweet, offering sappy black and blue fruit flavors and a sexy array of floral and spice accents For a rich wine this shows impressive finesse. The long, spice-accented finish features harmonious tannins and leaves sweet vanilla and cola notes behind.
